Ok

Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.]

The Plasma 40 would normally suggest its a 40A appliance which is around 9KW.

However most generators rated at 40A \ 9KW is the max load, so you need to allow a further 20% head room so not to have the generator working at max load for prolonged periods, so would opt for 50A or 11KW.

Please let me know if you need anything further.
